I'm an amature compared to most. My LG LCD HDTV has a USB port to plug a hardrive in. I've used it often. My method to date is.. plug my 60 gig portable HD to my computer, transfer shows/movies onto it and then take it to the tv and viola.. can watch my shows.
How can I eliminate the back and forth? My iMac is in the basement.. about a 50' wire run from the TV. I thought about running a long USB.. but no such thing. I've seen USB-Ethernet converters? I've run all my own cable so no biggie?
Any other suggestions?
